Blueberry Lemon Loaf

There’s a lot of iconic flavor combinations out there. This one has to be one of my favorites!

This blueberry lemon loaf is very simple to make but incredibly delicious! The sweet blueberries pair so nicely with the tart lemon flavor that fills this loaf.

This inside is light and moist and the outside crust is coated with a delicious lemon glaze.

I love making a loaf of some sort on Sunday to use through the week. They make for a great grab-and-run breakfast and are also a great partner to a mid-morning coffee or an afternoon glass of sweet tea. Once you have tried this one, make sure you try my classic banana bread recipe. Or if you are in need of a bit of a chocolate fix you should try this double chocolate zucchini bread.
